Caring for a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer's or dementia can be a challenge. Alzheimer's patients have unique care needs that can be a challenge to meet. You are not alone, in fact over 10 million people in the U.S. care for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease. The challenge for these caregivers is raising their own kids while holding down a full time job and still managing to care for their loved ones needs. For these caregivers, certain areas of their life will often suffer, such as their marriage, family, and career, as these areas will feel the stress.
The good news is you do not need to face this challenge alone. There is help available. Balanced Home Care provides compassionate care for patients with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. We specialize in in-home services such as everyday activities that comprise daily living. This gives both the caregiver and the patient much needed relief. Our staff is experienced in dealing with the anger, sadness, paranoia, confusion, and fear that often plague Alzheimer's patients. Victims of Alzheimer's often suffer mood swings that can make it difficult for family members to care for them. Our staff is specially trained to care for and understanding the needs of these patients.
